chore(build): add gitlab-ci.yml for ci

# Disable the Gradle daemon for Continuous Integration servers as correctness
# is usually a priority over speed in CI environments. Using a fresh
# runtime for each build is more reliable since the runtime is completely
# isolated from any previous builds.

# Rare project - Data discovery
## Setup
### Backend
The project uses Spring (5.x) for the backend,
with Spring Boot.
You need to install:
- a recent enough JDK8
Then at the root of the application, run `./gradlew build` to download the dependencies.
Then run `./gradlew bootRun` to start the app.
### Frontend
The project uses Angular (6.x) for the frontend,
with the Angular CLI.
You need to install:
- a recent enough NodeJS (8.11+)
- Yarn as a package manager (see [here to install](
Then in the `frontend` directory, run `yarn` to download the dependencies.
Then run `yarn start` to start the app, using the proxy conf to reroute calls to `/api` to the backend.
The application will be available on http://localhost:4200
## Build
To build the app, just run:
./gradlew assemble
This will build a standalone jar at `backend/build/libs/rare.jar`, that you can run with:
java -jar backend/build/libs/rare.jar
And the full app runs on http://localhost:8080
## CI
The `.gitlab-ci.yml` file describes how Gitlab is running the CI jobs.
It uses a base docker image named `ninjasquad/docker-rare`
available on [DockerHub](
and [Github](
The image is based on `openjdk:8` and adds a Chrome binary to let us run the frontend tests
(with a headless Chrome in `--no-sandbox` mode).
We install `node` and `yarn` in `/tmp` (this is not the case for local builds)
to avoid symbolic links issues on Docker.
You can approximate what runs on CI by executing:
docker run --rm -v "$PWD":/home/rare -w /home/rare ninjasquad/docker-rare ./gradlew build
